While bristling with track-focused engine and chassis performance technology,
the 2014 IS F remains a practical every day car, a true dual-purpose machine.
When it arrived for model year 2008, the IS F not only shook up the status quo among high-performance sport sedans, but also foreshadowed the brand's LFA supercar, which recently completed a 500-unit run. The same passion for performance continues to define the IS F, which for 2014 remains on a thoroughly optimized version of the 2nd-generation IS platform.
What's New for 2014
- LED foglamps (bulbs changed to LEDs)
- Carbon fiber rear spoiler
- All headrests embossed with "F" logo
- Alcantara trim (black) added to doors and center console cover
- Black full semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats (replaces black Alcantara and leather-trimmed seats)
- Red leather-trimmed seats receive black Alcantara inserts with red perforation and black leather-trimmed headrests
As if the 2014 Lexus IS F's bellowing exhaust note weren't enough to express the car's presence, the car's wide-body design also does much to convey the high-performance capability. The widened fenders were needed to clear the 19-inch low-profile tires, and other body modifications combine function with form, as well. The raised center section in the hood clears the big V8.
Air management for engine and brake cooling can be seen in large upper and lower mesh-type grilles, along with brake cooling ducts in the lower grille and air outlets in the front fenders, where you'll also spot the discrete silver, black and blue F badge.
Interior Designed with Enthusiasts in Mind
The interior of the 2014 Lexus IS F features an exclusive design treatment highlighted by aluminized composite trim, striking two-tone upholstery, main gauges, unique steering-wheel design and other special surface treatments. The "F" logo is discretely showcased on the steering wheel, rear-center console and all seat headrests.
